Hyperthyroidism


About
When too much thyroid hormone is produced, hyperthyroidism occurs. When this condition is present, the body has a fast metabolism. Nervousness, irritability, insomnia, frequent bowel movements, etc. may accompany hyperthyroidism. Growths on the thyroid may be a cause of hyperthyroidism.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase.

Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
